Josh Barro, the host and Center of the show, moderates the lively conversation with Left panelist Elizabeth Bruenig, Right panelist Tim Carney, and special guests Keli Goff and Gustavo Arellano. Who’s the likely Democratic nominee? Which candidate is reaching voters? Does it matter that California’s primary will now be held on Super Tuesday? And what will the Super Tuesday results say about the 2020 presidential election? Josh and the panel will make their best predictions for the Democratic presidential race and more. Left, Right & Center is your civilized yet provocative antidote to the self-contained opinion bubbles that dominate political debate. At this show, you’ll hear some of the brightest political thinkers agree, disagree, predict, rant and more.
